Snyder is putting in elements from Beyond. There was also I think the Powers who were part of the Court of Owls.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Both Bat books were great this week. Honestly, I'm not even sure which one I liked better. I'm gonna consider Tomasi's last couple arcs just a fluke. I'm so glad I decided not to drop Batman and Robin like I had planned after Death of the Family. Oh yeah, and seeing the Beyond suit in Batman was such a treat.

I was weak and couldn't stop myself from reading Green Lantern Corps #20. So yeah, one major bit of fallout from whatever happens in Green Lantern #20 is spoiled. Namely

I'm happy to see that happen, though. It's been a very long time coming. This should lead to some interesting possibilities for the Corps moving forward. It's just a shame that after this issue reaffirms how much Guy needs the Green Lantern Corps, that we already know he'll be leaving it next issue.

Yeah he introduced the Powers family in Court of Owls, I think it was even "Batman #1" IIRC.

I was just looking at my pull list for Wednesday, and it says Green Lantern #20 has been pushed to May 22, yet Green Lantern Corps that takes places after it is still coming out this week?
Yeah, that confused me at first too.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy. This will either be a train wreck, or potentially the most awesome thing the New 52 has done so far.

Looks like Morrison's "Wonder Woman" project will indeed be "Wonder Woman: Earth One" and finally "Multiversity" is slated for release.

Just clicked on the preview for Batman and Red Hood #20 and I have to say that I'm really enjoying this version of Carrie Kelly. She's been an interesting character so far. I am assuming that at the end of the grieving arc that Bruce will reveal to her that his son is actually dead. Or she'll come to realize that he's been hiding that in order to hide their secret from her.
I think I'm annoyed with Carrie Kelly at the moment.

For one thing, I don't see what she has in common with the Frank Miller character beyond the name. I really feel like they're using the name "Carrie Kelly" just to use it.

And the other thing, she reminds me, personality-wise, of Stephanie Brown, if Stephanie didn't know the Bat-family's secret identities, far more than she reminds me of Carrie.

I almost wonder if Tomasi wanted to use Stephanie for this arc and when he was told no he simply replaced her with another character but gave the character the same attributes. It wouldn't be the first time this happened in the past two years.

^I would be willing to bet that's exactly what happened.

I'm really wondering what the heck Didio's vendetta against Stephanie is. It's like nobody is even allowed to mention her.

I'm getting so sick of hearing about Brown that I'm hoping they bring her back and cut her head off in the second panel she appears in.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I get it though. She's a fan-favorite character that has completely disappeared following the New 52. That alone isn't the problem, since there's plenty of those, but the fact that DC Editorial seems absolutely unwilling to talk about her, along with the reports that writers have been banned from using her, is what really gets people in a huff.

I get that people are in a huff, I get that but it's starting to remind me of when you couldn't move for Brown-tongues telling you had to see serenity.

It's not a vendetta. He is following his editorial philosophy that dictates for well known comic properties only the most well known versions should be kept around and the lesser well known version should be either dumped into limbo or killed off or given some other role.

It's why he wanted Nightwing killed off in Infinite Crisis. He felt his evolution away from Robin was a mistake. The same for Wally West as Flash and Kyle as Green Lantern.

Then why isn't Wally West the Flash, or John Stewart the main Green Lantern? They were the ones in the Justice League cartoon which is the biggest exposure either of those characters have had in decades. Do you know how many times I heard people asking me why Green Lantern wasn't black when the movie was coming out? Growing up, Wally West was my Flash. Barry Allen was some guy that died before I was born.

And Didio feels otherwise.

I'm sure he does. I'm just pointing out the holes in the logic.
